hi all!

i make a drill-down in webfocus using exl2k format in a browser. it works quite ok.. but when i go back one step using the browser button (ie6.0) i get a message that the file ibiweb.exe is allready open and can�t be opened the same time with the same name...

is there a possibility to go back without getting this message. users may not understand what to do ;-)

thanx ernst

It is an browser/software issue in the sense excel is not web/html page, you will find the same issue with pdf. The standard solution is to provide a back link in your exl2k. Basically each drill down will be having a back link.

You can also include the link to go back to the top level. Our users really appreciated this.
